Lake Levels Rising

Many Texomans will be happy to know that Lake Arrowhead did see it's water line rise significantly because of the recent rain. Where once was bare dirt and ground now is covered by water washing ashore.

While the rains impact on Lake Arrowhead was visible, it's still not viable enough to heal the damage done by years of drought.

Rob Noble has lived in his house off Lake Arrowhead for the last 15 years. However, his dry dock has not touched the lake's waters since 2008. Noble said he has noticed an increase with the high amounts of rain in the last 24 hours.

"It's come up, some believe it or not there was a lot more dirt out there than there is now. It just takes your faith in this lake you know, of course you want it to be full of course we live in the dessert," said Noble.

Lake Arrowhead would need to rise about another 14 feet before his dry dock would be able to touch the water and dock his boat.

"I got faith it will come back. The lake that faith built, that's what this is. Yes, it will come back. It's got to come back," said Noble.

Wichita Falls city officials will provide us with an exact number on how much rain fell over the Lake Arrowhead watershed by tomorrow.
